I recently bought a ps3 from a friend without a power cord or av cord. i used my old ps2 av cord and the power cord form my computer desktop tower. I played it for three days with no problem at all played a few demos and messed around in the shop with themes. I bought 90 dollars in psn points to get a 3month plus membership and 2 games. I am also upgraded to 3.66. I went to download one of my games from the store on my system and my power cord in the back behind my tv became unplugged. I turned my system back on and got the message saying it was improperly turned off. When i got my menu screen with all the options on it like games music and pictures i cant use any of them i only get the drop down menu for settings and even when i try to reupdate my ps3 it pauses and goes into a black screen. when i try to turn it off the "right" way it turns the screen off and the green light keeps blinking and wont turn off. Please help me understand the problem...

Access the Ps3's recovery menu and update it from there. You WILL need to put the update onto a flash drive and plug it into the Playstation to have it update this way. Below is a link telling you how to access the menu.

If there's two things I hate in this world, it's cockroaches and crying babies! Well, a crying baby cockroach would be truly terrible... So don't you dare cry!
